Have you ever wondered why you took the wrong exit from a freeway or the wrong turn at a traffic light when you could have found your way blindfolded? What if you were late leaving for work or school? Who was the stranger that spoke to you as you were entering a restaurant? In other words, why do these things happen when they do? Naturally, they could just be happenstances, but they could also be small miracles. The stranger may have said the right thing at the right moment ... something you needed to hear. Being late or taking wrong exits or turns could have saved your life. I often think of the people who were supposed to be at the World Trade Center on 9/11 but weren't because of little excuses. My message today is to be grateful for all the moments of your lives. Life is precious, so go out and have a beautiful day regardless of its wrong turns....

We've read that good writing will eventually find its way, and we're hoping it will be true for Sanctity of the Heart, a story of the in-between.
When the supernatural and natural worlds collide in a mystical place of visions, love and forgiveness explode in the hearts of those who live on the pages of Sanctity of the Heart.
A mother's touch is comforting to her small child. A mother's look is all a teenager needs to hit the books. A mother's pride means everything to her graduate. A mother's prayer is constant. A mother becomes a loving grandmother, a babysitter, a cook. A mother protects her flock; she nourishes. Then, after all the years, what does she do? She fades into grayer eyes and hair, slower steps, and without warning, returns home to the arms of her dear God.
Keep your mothers in your hearts and prayers, always.... Happy Mother's Day!
Have you ever noticed as you approached your home or the homes of good friends, how the Christmas lights sparkle in the gentleness of an evening rain, or the start of a light snow? These and other things give me pause to reflect....
Who is it I miss the most in my life? Who do I love the most? Which people are in my prayers? Do I touch the lives of others? Have I forgiven a hurt?
These are important questions to ask because, hopefully, the answers will guide us to a deeper understanding of who we are.
During this Holiday Season, may you all experience the happiness of God's grace, joy, and peace. Merry Christmas and please pray for our soldiers.
